Yeah the TV is a great deal. Too bad I have no need for it right now or I would pick one up.

The Kaser drive however isn't that great. Here's the review of the drive:

Reviewer: Brown B, Hamilton

Good price for a decent amount of storage, but slow transfer rate of 12MB / sec even though it's a USB 2 drive. Not actual flash memory, mini hard drive inside meaning there's moving parts inside and there's a greater chance for failure, especially if you drop it. If you take care of the unit, and don't care for a slow transfer speed, then this is a good value for your dollar. Otherwise, get a real flash based drive.

All my thanks for this post, drawing my attention to this offer. I purchased one when there was 9 left in stock.

I'm currently buying everything for my new house and this is a great TV to put in a den for kids to watch movies. Now there's a point for buying it :)

Nice price on the TV. But with the way prices are dropping on LCD TV's...you're probably better off waiting until next year for that new tv. :D

Let me get this straight. A 16:9 480i TV that is basically only good for standard def. analog 4:3. LOL, Basically you just bought yourself the equivelent of a 15" standard def. TV. Good job! The reason why they are liquidating it for $299 is because the TV is pointless, its neither good for standard analog 480i 4:3 because its a 16:9, and it can't play HD or 480p which is why you want the widescreen. What a joke.

Its perfect for what I need: a tv to play widescreen non-HD downloaded tv shows off my xbox. A very specific use, for sure, but that's what i needed, and at $299 plus tax, its a good price.

If somebody need a good HDTV, I remeber in boxing day sale, there is a LG 44' DLP Projection HDTV, only $1500 bucks. It is a great deal.

For somebody which need a second or a cheap TV for kid or for fun, I believe this Toshiba one is wonderful.

BTW, in the afternoon, FS restock 25 (or more), but now all re gone.

I have the Toshiba tv, and I admit, it's a really good tv for the price. The TV looks nice, the picture is very clear, and the controller is nice and light (one of the best I've held). I've been playing my xbox 360 on it, and the picture is very good, especially in widescreen. Although the TV is not hd, it looks like it is when playing on it. I also have a 32" Sony Wega, and if I had to compare the two, I would say that the Toshiba has better picture quality.

The only drawback I can find is that the TV is a bit small. When you see it in-store for yourself, it'll probably be smaller than you expected. All in all, though, I would still highly recommend this TV if you're looking for a good one at a good price. Of course, if you want HD, spend $200 more and get the hd version for $499.
